Our research is organised around our world-leading research groups, allowing the availability of a wide variety of PhD projects.
Select a research group or research centre below to find out more about current project ideas.
You can explore our research and supervisor profiles to decide if your intended research topic is likely to fit with any of the research the school is already undertaking. If there is a match, please contact the academic for that research area to discuss your research topic in more detail.
It is important to note that these research projects are currently unfunded so when making your application, you will be required to demonstrate that you have already obtained, or intend to apply for, external funding. You can find out about our funded projects and how to apply for these opportunities on our fees and funding page.
